What Past Guests Are Saying
Welton, East Yorkshire
Quaint and quiet cottage
We booked last minute, and were delighted with the cottage. It is opposite a fab pub and in a quiet but convenient location for visiting Hawkshead, Ambleside etc. We had a problem with the heating, but the owner responded promptly and it was fixed within hours.
Rustic Cottage Experience
Right from the start the Cottage Holiday Group offered one of the best customer service I have ever experienced. Booking was exceptionally easy with very friendly staff. We had an issue on the second day of our holiday with the heating and one call to them and they had organised someone to come and help get it fixed. They also called back to check we were happy.
The cottage itself was brilliantly located, Nr Sawrey is a really good base to explore the lakes from. Anvil Cottage is pretty much opposite Hilltop and the local pub just up the road. The cottage is definitely rustic, which to me lends to the experience but has all the facilities needed.
The local pub serves excellent food at a very reasonable price.
Good walks such as up to Moss Eccles Tarn and beyond.
Esthwaite water(just a short walk) offers the opportunity for some trout fishing with very helpful staff to give you tips.
Hawkshead has some small shops that you can get supplies from but I would recommend a trip to ambleside and get some local meat from the butchers(always have to get Cumberland Sausages) and some excellent bread from the bakers
We have been to the lakes quite a few times now, and this cottage and location is up there with the best. The customer service was far and away the best we have ever experienced with any holiday booking.
The best thing about the holiday was the location and the sheer bliss of getting away from the rat race. The worst was the weather but you learn to except that in the Lakes in March. Losing the Central Heating for a day was bad, but this led to the positive of meeting a really nice local property caretaker whose family had lived there for generations and whose family new Beatrix Potter.
We got a really good deal on a last minute break, and even at full price this is a good choice for a stay in the Lakes as long as you are not expecting a modern accommodation. But then why would you go to the Lakes for this.
Perfect Location - Cottage needs updating internally
Anvil Cottage was set in the most perfect location, the beautiful village of Near Sawrey - pub within spitting distance, beautiful walks literally on your doorstep - couldn't have been a more perfect setting. The cottage on the outside was ideal, however, internally it is in need of modernising and revamping! Everything was clean and tidy, but the decor and furnishings need reviving. The bedrooms were light and airy, and bathroom was perfectly adequate, however, the main sitting room/dining room and kitchen need a face lift. If the cottage had been better presented internally we would book for our next holiday, as it was, unfortunately we won't be returning.
My wife contacted you by telephone to tell you some of the things which were wrong with the property i.e. Cd player not working, light bulbs not working, some TV remotes not working, instructions needed for the oven, guttering overflowing onto people below and general state of maintenance.
Was warm and comfortable, but we could not recommend it to anyone else because of the above
Nice cottage, good location but kitchen below standard
Nice location and cottage was nice and clean... But fridge had no shelves in door which meant a massive loss of space for chilled food which is a problem with 6 hungry people in the house. Also lack of storage in kitchen - cupboards could do with a de-clutter to provide guests with more storage space for food.
Plenty of coal and logs though which was a bonus as we had some chilly evenings. Generally house could do with a bit of tlc compared to some other cottages we have stayed in recently in this price bracket.
fabulous location for walks. Good local pub. Nice enclosed garden. Leaky gutterings that were a problem when opening/closing the gates. Bedding very poor ie soiled/stained. Nice open fire with unlimited fuel. Dark decor and low enery light bulbs so couldn't see to read except on window seats.
Warm, Relaxing, Refreshed and left wanting more.
Anvil Cottage in Sawrey, is a beautiful well equiped cottage, decor is a little dated but very comfortable, with lots of room for a large family. Two bathrooms one upstairs which has a large bath for long soaks and one downstairs with a large shower with pleny of hot water. Outside the front door turn right for a mile walk to Moss Eccles Tarn where Beatrix Potter kept a rowing boat. Turn left to the Tower Bank arms and Hill top. In walking distance to Hakeshead Village which is highly recommended. Short drive to Wray Castle and ambleside or a Ferry to Windermere. Can't rate this cottage high enough. Very clean and cosy, can't wait to go again, perfectly postioned for days out in the car or for long walks, with plenty of logs and coal for an open fire. Anyone staying in this property will have a wonderful time. Close to all the Southern lakes, The Langdales and Tarn Howls, which is a 10 min car ride and and a great find. My family and I visit the lakes fron Kent about 4 times a year and to date this has been our favourite stay.
Great location for all things Lake District
Ideal location for all of the Lake District's biggest adverts. Stunning senery, beautiful villages and friendly people (there is a very friendly pub across the road).
The cottage is typical of the region, not too modern, very cosy and a great base to explore the surrounding country. The cottage was clean and plenty of coal/wood for the open fire. Dog friendly as was the pub with secure garden. Parking here is a bonus with Beatrix Potter Hill Top home adjacent, therefore garage most welcome.

Lovely warm welcoming cottage we will come again

Paul and Melanie
I telephoned Cottage Holiday Group and asked about booking anvil Cottage from the thursday night to tuesday morning, not a problem, unlike some other rental agents, who asked for a full weeks booking starting from the saturday, they were extremly helpfull and most plesant. The cottage is fully equipt, well maintained and well apointed, everything you require is available in the cottage, from a phone charger for a nokia 6510 to any amount off cooking and domestic equipment, local information about walks and places to visit,to the best takeaways and even the delivery drivers name at the local tesco's. The inside is spotlessly clean, had a fire already laid out just ready to throw on a match (supplied in a draw)not that is was cold enough, the cottage is lovely and toasty. The enclosed garden was superb for Jackson our springer, there is ample off road parking with a private drive at the side of the cottage and even a garage.Don't let the cottage photo's influence your choise, you will more than enjoy your stay at anvil Cottage, and don't forget the pub is only 50 yards away. Thank you Cottage Holliday Group.
Lovely comfortable cottage combining old world charm and modern
We had a great time overall. The accommodation is great with an open fire, central heating and two bathrooms - bliss!. The local dairy service is a boon and the pub couldn't be nearer. Lots of walks with the dogs and lovely scenery. We will return.
idillic location with excellent pub in walking distance
We have stayed at anvil Cottage before and couldnt wait to retrun. The cottge is in an excellent location for many great walks within the lakes and also great walks from the cottage itself.
The cottage is very well equiped with a lovely open fire, it is very comfortble and cosy.
Anadded bonus is the location of the pub whihc can be seen from the cottage, very friendly with great real ales and excellent food
